Color Dare #196 ~ Calypso colors!

Hi and welcome to our latest color challenge from Color My Heart!

--Beyond Awesome stamp set
--White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
--Cardstock: Lagoon, White Daisy
--Ink: Lagoon, Pear
--Shimmer Trim: Pear
--Fundamental Assortment: Pear

If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help you.
